Took a total of 5 minutes to replace the handle including going and getting the philips head. Unscrew from inside door and replace. Piece of cake.

One of the two screws that held the handle to the microwave was broken off, leaving a flimsy handle that would probably break completely off soon.

The switches are not the problem! The problem is in the tolerences of the latch housing. I have ordered two new housings (Upper & Lower) and will see if the tolerences are closer. If not I will try epoxying a shim to the plate that operates the microswitches. The other option is to file the mounting slots of the housing to allow adjustment, which would be iffy,keeping them from moving with use. The exploded drawings really need to be clarified. The scale is way too small. It was extremely difficult to pick out the individual parts of the mechanisiam.

Turned the power to the unit off. Removed seven- (7) small screws from the base plate, not removing the rear screws. The plate dropped a few inches allowing me to get to the light socket.

I removed one- (1) screw that allowed the socket to be removed. I then detached the two- (2) electrical leads. I now installed the new socket, replacing the leads and the screw along with a new bulb. I pushed the bottom plate back into the up position and replaced the seven- (7) screws.

Turned the power back on and we were good to go.

Replaced the sockets, lens and bulbs. The first time the new bulb was touching the lens and the heat broke the lens and burnt out the bulb. The second time I adjusted the socket so that the bulb does not touch the lens.

Impressed by how quickly the parts arrived after the order was submitted. Two days.

Thank you.

The cost for the replacement door handle is outrageous coupled with the overnight shipment I could have bought a band new microwave.

In any further repairs are required I'll deal directly with GE.
